Impact of haemoconcentration during acute heart failure therapy on mortality and its relationship with worsening renal function.


AIMS Treatment goals in acute heart failure (AHF) are poorly defined. We aimed to characterize further the impact of in-hospital haemoconcentration and worsening renal function (WRF) on short- and long-term mortality.
